ABOUT
ABOUT

Elias Samson Profile


Elias Samson is a RAW superstar, known for his parody music and hitting the opponents with his

guitar, much like the Honky Tonk Man and Jeff Jarrett did, through their professional wrestling

careers. Before he ever arrived in WWE, Elias Samson was known as Heavy Metal Jesus in the

independent circuit.

NXT


Elias Samson made his NXT debut as a jobber, and continued to be one until he discovered his

character. He began to be known as The Drifter and had feuds with the likes of Apollo Crews and

Kassius Ohno. Ohno defeated Elias Samson in a ‘Loser Leaves NXT Match’, forcing him to quit the

promotion. Elias Samson would return subsequently in a mask, under the name El Vagabundo.


Main Roster


Elias Samson became one of those rare cases of a superstar who attained greater success in the

main roster than he did in NXT. He came up to RAW in 2017, often drifting about in the background.

Corey Graves, the announcer who despised his music in NXT, carried the gimmick to RAW as well.

Elias Samson would drop his last name and come be known simply as Elias. He had a feud with Jason

Jordan, followed by one with John Cena and another with Finn Balor. Subsequently, Elias would turn

babyface owing to the massive crowd support he has, and embark on a feud with Bobby Lashley and

his hype man Lio Rush.


Elias took on Bobby Lashley in a ladder match on the TLC Kickoff Show. He remains one of WWE’s

most entertaining performers.
